Make this program count for Darlington School! Submit your 2018 GOAL Tax Credit Form online today by visiting www.goalscholarship.org.
This is a proven opportunity that is a win-win-win for taxpayer donors, scholarship recipients, and our school community. By simply contributing to the Georgia GOAL Scholarship Program for a 100% Georgia income tax credit, you will help maximize this source of financial aid for deserving families desiring to receive a Darlington School education.
This valuable Georgia law is a rare and precious opportunity provided to us by our state legislators. Over the past several years, the tax credit program has become so popular that all $58 million in available credits are consumed on the first business day of the year. Without you, this program would not be the success story that it is today.
Unfortunately, this wonderful program could be revoked at any time by our General Assembly. That’s why it is imperative that alumni, parents, grandparents, faculty, staff and friends of Darlington act fast to help with this opportunity for Georgia’s children. Just imagine what we can do for the lives of these Georgia students, and what a boost it will be to our enrollment at Darlington.
Your participation will allow us to admit excellent, deserving student applicants to our school. We ask that you “make it count” and help us continue to empower students to reach their potential and achieve their dreams.
